Given list of strings, perform concatenation in groups till K.

Input : test_list = [“Gfg”, “is”, “Best”, “”, “I”, “Love”, “”, “Gfg”], K = “”
Output : [‘Gfg is Best’, ‘I Love’, ‘Gfg’]
Explanation : Concatenated words with “” as new String separator.

Input : test_list = [“Gfg”, “is”, “Best”, “”, “I”, “Love”], K = “”
Output : [‘Gfg is Best’, ‘I Love’]
Explanation : Concatenated words with “” as new String separator.

Method : Using loop + join() + list comprehension

This is a way in which this task can be performed. In this, we construct parts of strings into lists, and then perform join of individual lists using join() and list comprehension.

Python3




# Python3 code to demonstrate working of 
# Group concatenate Till K 
# Using loop + join() + list comprehension
  
# initializing lists
test_list = ["Gfg", "is", "Best", None, "I", "Love", None, "Gfg"]
  
# printing original list
print("The original list : " + str(test_list))
  
# initializing K 
K = None
  
# all() to encapsulate whole logic into one expression
res = [[]]
for sub in test_list:
      
    # checking for K value, and performing append to 
    # latest list 
    if sub != K:
        res[-1].append(sub)
    else:
          
        # constructing new list if new group
        res.append([])
  
# Joining all groups 
fin_res = [' '.join(ele) for ele in res]
  
# printing result 
print("Concatenated Groups : " + str(fin_res))

Output

The original list : ['Gfg', 'is', 'Best', None, 'I', 'Love', None, 'Gfg']
Concatenated Groups : ['Gfg is Best', 'I Love', 'Gfg']
